The Bali House of Representatives (DPRD-Bali) have called for close supervision of the Simpang Siur Underpass Project to ensure that PT Adhi Karya – the contractor appointed to build the project, complete all work in accordance with the time schedule set forth in the Detailed Engineering Design (DED).
“We are demanding that the execution of the project be done under close supervision. If the work does not conform to schedule, the Governor of Bali must be brave enough to issue written reminders," said the vice-chairman of Commission III of the DPRD-Bali, Made Suryantha Putra to BertiaBali.com on Thursday, January 19, 2012.
Suyantha said that the right to supervise rests wiith the province, pointing out that although financed from the national coffers, the project belongs to the province.
Suyantha Putra reminded that close and careful supervision of PT Adhi Karya was made necessary by the poor track record of the construction company on past projects. He claimed that past contracts handled by Adhi Karya, such as the construction of the Government Center in Bandung, West Java, were not delivered on schedule.
“The provincial government of Bali must supervise this project from the very beginning. They must also examine the materials used, starting from the dimensions of steel, concentrations of cement and other materials – all must be in accordance with the DED. If there is one item found at variance with the DED, the supervisor of the project and the provincial government of Bali must be prepared to temporarily halt the project until the quality of work comes back into line with the DED,” said Suyantha.
Earlier, Bali governor Made Mangku Pastika also called for the Simpang Siur Dewa Ruci Underpass Project to be built on schedule and in strict conformance with the contract of works.
